Rajasthan Ambulance Scam: Top Congressmen named in FIR

Jaipur, June 11: Top Congressmen like Ashok Gehlot, Sachin Pilot, Ravi Krishna and Karthi Chidambaram have been named in an FIR filed in an ambulance scam under the Rural Health Mission, which is currently being investigated by the Crime Branch-Criminal Investigation Department or CB-CID of the state police. Some of the other names in the FIR were that of former union ministers Vayalar Ravi and P Chidambaram.

In the year 2013, Jigitsa Healthcare, which is a company run by Ravi Krishna, received the contract to operate 108 ambulances across Rajasthan, Bihar and Punjab. However, an audit report by the health department in Rajasthan calculated huge financial discrepencies in the way the ambulances were operated, with losses amounting to Rs. 14 crore.

The BJP has accused the Congress of giving the tender to the company due to political connections after it was found that Pilot and Chidambaram had also served as its directors. The Rajasthan police has filed an FIR against them and the case was transferred to CB-CID.
